They certainly have. I've never liked it, anyway--I'll take homemade first, followed by a mom-and-pop--then Fuddrucker's followed by Burger King.

If Whataburger were from another state, the same people defending it would be trashing it. It's rather unspectacular.

And if Whataburger were from another state, many of the same people bashing it would be lauding it. If it were a specific other state, those same people would be bemoaning the fact that they can't get it here.

I've been told an awful lot of things about Californians, are you implying that they are all true?

Honestly, if you think that ANY fast-food chain is really going to have the BEST BURGER EVER you need to turn off the TV and start thinking for yourself a little.

Every In and Out burger I've had has been around a C. Whataburgers I've had has been from B to D. Shrug. Neither is particularly great nor particularly awful.

To be fair though, I don't really go to either place much, as there are many, many better burger options in DFW. Many.

The argument basically boils down to this: "My average chain hamburger that is loved primarily for nostalgic reasons is better than your average chain hamburger that is loved primarily for nostalgic reasons!" It's not a very interesting argument.

hmmm. Ever notice that they cost about the same? And that In-n-Out's #1 meal is the double double?

It's almost like they intend for the baseline size to be the double double... and it's almost as if they design the patties to be small to make that happen...

Amazing.

I'm not a big fast food fan, but while living in Texas a few years ago, I decided to give Whataburger a try. Apparently I got a bad one because the burger was full of bone chips. It still grosses me out to think about it. I have NEVER had a burger like that before in my life and I had to toss it after about the third bone chip. I never went back. From my personal experience, I assume they aren't using the best quality of beef for their burgers.
I have also tried and In & Out and enjoyed my burger. I liked the grilled onions. But it was a long wait for that burger.
